Eriksen decides to join up with Man Utd, Barca signs Christensen on a free transfer

Christian Eriksen is on his way to MU for a medical exam before signing a free-agent contract with the Red Devils.

The two parties’ agreement is supposed to run for three years, through the summer of 2025. Eriksen is an essential component for new MU coach Erik ten Hag in renewing his team for the 2022/23 season.


Eriksen will be subjected to a more thorough medical check than usual after suffering a stroke during EURO 2020 last year. However, MU fans hope that everything will move smoothly because Eriksen performed admirably for Brentford the previous season.

After Paul Pogba left on a free form, coach Erik ten Hag will have one more creative spark in addition to Bruno Fernandes with Eriksen.

Eriksen is thus MU’s second acquisition of the season, following Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord. Lisandro Martinez of Ajax Amsterdam is the Reds’ next target.

After his contract with Chelsea expired, Christensen joined Barcelona. With a contract release clause of 500 million euros, the Danish midfielder will remain at Camp Nou until the summer of 2026.

Christensen will be in Barcelona on 7/7 to sign his contract and attend his first press conference as a Blaugrana player.

The 1996-born player is a product of Chelsea’s youth system. In six seasons with the West London club, the midfielder made 161 appearances, scored two goals, and won four trophies, including the Champions League, Europa League, FIFA Club World Cup, and UEFA Super Cup.

Christensen will be Barcelona’s second rookie in 2022, behind midfielder Franck Kessie. Both of these stars were invited to Camp Nou for free. Coach Xavi hopes to sign a striker and a central defender soon. The Spaniard has his sights set on Robert Lewandowski and Jules Kounde.

According to Marca, Barcelona intends to make a place for rookies by releasing many players who are no longer in the plans. Memphis Depay, Riqui Puig, Oscar Mingueza, Neto, and Samuel Umtiti will all have to find new homes before the end of the summer transfer season.

Liverpool fans have been following the status of defender Neco Williams in recent days. He has recently returned from a loan stint at Fulham. The 21-year-old has made a significant contribution to The Cottagers’ promotion to the Premier League, scoring two goals and providing two assists in 15 games across all competitions. The Wales international drew the attention of Nottingham Forest with excellent performance.

According to Football Insider, Nottingham is trying to add Williams to their defense, specifically at right back. Djed Spence was a right-back for Nottingham in the 2021/22 season, however, he has since returned to the Middlesbrough owner squad after a loan term. Not to mention that the Englishman is also a target for Tottenham Hotspur, thus Nottingham needed to find another option – Neco Williams.

According to the above-mentioned source, the athlete born in 2001 has agreed to personal terms. However, the two clubs must yet negotiate some terms. So far, Nottingham has made a proposal of £12 million for Williams, which is significantly less than Liverpool’s £15 million estimates.

The Kop has recently recruited three rookies and may need to sell certain players to balance revenue and expenditure.

After losing Fernandinho, Man City had an immediate excellent replacement in Kalvin Phillips, a player who coach Pep Guardiola has long liked.

The Englishman signed a 6-year contract with the Etihad Stadium squad and wore the number 4 jersey. The parties’ agreement was not publicized, however, British media confirmed that the Blue Man only lost roughly £45 million on this transaction.

Kalvin Phillips is a Yorkshire footballer, having been born and raised in Leeds. In 2015, he made his debut for Leeds United’s main team. After eight seasons, the central midfielder has appeared in 234 games and scored 14 goals.

The ability of Kalvin Phillips to recover the ball and start assaults is his strength. It’s no accident that he’s been dubbed “Pirlo of Yorkshire” due to his aesthetic and effective playing technique, akin to the Italian legend.

Phillips played a key role in Leeds’ come back to the Premier League after a 16-year absence and their continued relegation over the past two seasons. The 26-year-old midfielder was also instrumental in England reaching the Euro 2020 final.

Man City, unlike MU, is making good use of the 2022 summer market. Before the arrival of Kalvin Phillips, the Premier League champions signed forward Erling Haaland from Dortmund and goalkeeper Stefan Ortega Moreno from Arminia Bielefeld.

What’s more, Ronaldo issued a transfer request to Manchester United over the weekend, less than a year after returning to Old Trafford after a 12-year absence.

While the Red Devils are thought to want Ronaldo to stay, he is not the type of player who can alter his mind once he has decided to leave.


Ronaldo’s age and MU’s current condition make it tough to keep the Portuguese superstar at number one, as he did in 2008.

Based on the £500,000/week pay that Ronaldo is currently receiving at Old Trafford, there is no possibility that he will leave MU because it is tough for any Champions League team to match that for a player who will be 38 years old. years later, even if Chelsea is exploring a move.

According to the Independent, Ronaldo is willing to cut his pay “substantially” to leave MU and join a Champions League squad.

Chelsea and Bayern Munich were suggested, as well as Mourinho’s AS Roma, but this is doubtful because the Serie A representative does not qualify for the C1 Cup.

Ronaldo wants to participate in the Champions League so that the record is not broken. Since 2002, when he was at Sporting Lisbon, the Portuguese striker has always competed in this important event.

Ronaldo now holds the Champions League scoring record with 140 goals, while Messi is second with 125, but CR7’s opponent is two years younger and will have the potential to raise his goal total this season with PSG. As a result, if Ronaldo remains at MU, he may be fully eclipsed by M10 in the future.
